Local community group, InclusioNado, is collaborating with the Coronado Unified School District to host a Diversity Book Drive to benefit Coronado school libraries.
InclusioNado identified award-winning books with diverse perspectives that have been recommended by the California Department of Education for grades Kindergarten through 12. Librarians at Coronado High School, Coronado Middle School, Village Elementary School, and Silver Strand Elementary School confirmed books not currently available in the school libraries. The books were then added to an Amazon Wish List for each school so members of the community can donate the recommended books to the school of their choice.
The selected books present a wide range of perspectives including a young girl in a Navajo tribe, a Jewish Major League Baseball player, a family on the Underground Railroad, Muslims during the Holocaust, a young Vietnam refugee, a deaf teenager, and portraits of Hispanic American heroes. Coronado families are encouraged to review the list of books for inspiration to diversify their home libraries.
Members of the Coronado Community are invited to support the Diversity Book Drive benefiting the Coronado Schools by visiting www.inclusionado.org/bookdrive.
